Equalization Payments

A few days ago I mused (not on this blog) that Canada's system of equalization payments should be scrapped. They are, and have been, a massive welfare scheme that prevents people and provinces from taking responsibility for themselves. Hence, some provinces, think Quebec and Ontario, become Welfare Queens writ large.

Low and behold, at the same time, the Media was putting more or less the same arguments out there.

God I'm hot!! /sarc

Time for some reality therapy for Quebec and the other grifter provinces!

You know, Ontario elites really do suffer from "we're Canadian and you're not" syndrome.

Out here in the colonies we don't count for much and now that we are more or less the economic engine of the country, they really are having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that we have a different point of view than the one they have assigned to us.
